Williamston DDA to line downtown with banners purchased by local businesses

The Williamston Downtown Development Authority received 14 letters from downtown business owners who would like to hang in the banners outside their businesses. City Manager, Corey Schmidt, said the banners will be given out on a first-come-first-serve basis. In the downtown area, there are nearly three dozen businesses that entertain the residents and surrounding areas.
Williamston City Mayor Tammy Gilroy objected to the idea of first come first serve basis; as she said she would rather have more banners under the lights than just a couple of dozens.
